Fine. I guess I can’t ignore it anymore. A couple of days ago, Joss Whedon posted a blog – available to read in its entirety here at Whedonesque – which discusses Dollhouse. I wanted to just ignore it in the hopes that it would go away. Like, if I close my eyes, you can’t see me. That sort of thing. Unfortunately, its all true and its not going anywhere.
I’ve seen all three Acts of Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. I was away on vacation this past week, so it was kinda bad timing, but I worked it out. As for Dr. Horrible, I loved it. I totally, totally loved it. And I don’t think it’s just cause of Joss Whedon. I mean, I think it’s good because of Joss, but I think I loved it cause it was just so good.
The ending wasn’t what I expected, but I’m not gonna give it away, cause you still have a couple of hours to go see it for free at www.drhorrible.com, (or use the links at www.doctorhorrible.net, if the other site is down). If you don’t get the chance to see it for free, then go download the whole thing at iTunes for $3.99. You will enjoy it, I promise. Somehow, as I started watching, I was envisioning more and more episodes of the same sort of thing, the evil Dr. Horrible, plotting to join the Evil League of Evil, thwarted at every turn by his arch nemesis, Captain Hammer, and always pining for his dream girl, Penny. I guess that’s not gonna happen, but still, I’ll take more, no matter what does happen. I’ve also got to say that I’m really gaining an appreciation for Neil Patrick Harris as an actor.
Sorry I didn’t get this to you yesterday, but we were actually traveling, and then when I tried to log into the doctorhorrible.com website to watch Act 1 of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, the site was continually down. Very frustrating. So after messing around with that for an hour or two, I just went to iTunes and purchased the whole thing for $3.99 (it was $1.99 per Act and I know I’m gonna want them all). Its so worth it, if the first installment is anything to go by.
I loved it!! So my advice to you is to forget dealing with trying to watch for free. Just go buy it. You’re gonna want to anyway. I just bought it last night and I’ve probably only seen it like a dozen times, is all.
OK, I promise. This will (almost probably) be the last mention I make of Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog until next week. It’s just that stuff keeps happening and I’m so excited about it. Plus, we want to get the word out so that more and more people know. But, honestly, I do have other Whedony stuff to talk about. Really, I do.
I know I keep going on and on about Dr. Horrible, but I’m just so excited about a new Whedon project and Dollhouse is still in the future. First of all, here’s a link to the official myspace. But more importantly, the dates are here!!!! I’m so amazingly thrilled about this, I can’t stand it. The first part will air on Tuesday, July 15, the second part on Thursday, July 17, and the third part on Saturday, July 19. All three parts will remain up until Sunday, July 20. All to be viewed free! After that, Dr. Horrible will be available for download.
